Seattle Weekly's Description

There are neighborhoods that count dry cleaners and gas stations as necessary amenities. In Ballard, the list of must-haves includes a cozy sushi den, a niche neatly filled by Shiku. The brick-walled lounge is fond of embossing its menu and website with adjectives like "inventive" and "innovative," but there's nothing really mind-blowing here. The quasi-izakaya's won fans with its pert cocktails and fairly-priced spicy tuna rolls, not its omakase. No matter: The fish is fresh, the vibe is homey and the restaurant saves Ballardites the trouble of straying too far from the 'hood.
